HOLY SHIT. This is what it did to the towel I had it sitting on.
Boy am I impressed. In fact it was so shitty, I'm hoping the over dye will be enough. One skein was clearly a different dye job than all the others, it looks different even with the over dye. AND the black turned it purple (which I was mostly expecting) but its still far superior to the pink. I'll post pics when they are dry.
Can I just reiterate what a disappointment this was? So much time and MONEY for this? All I can say is Hipknits really dropped the ball. Nearly a year later and I still regret that decision.
*OMG can you say FAST SHIPPING? ONE DAY! Cal .. you rock.

Case in point 1:
Peeing in the dark for 2 weeks. Cause the "easy install bathroom fan" was not. And it only took 4 years to finally finish the last thing that needed to be done on it.
Nice huh? Guess what? WE GET A NEW COUNTER!!!! Yay!! :) Now to decide on what to do with the grotty ol' cupboards.
* No leaks anymore! Good job lovey!

Notice Pickles wonky eye? He is perplexed!
Hahahaha funny not.
After the tedium that was 8 stitches to the inch (stripery socks) these 4 st/inch ones were banged out in a day. Ok and they are short, but DUDES! I LOVE SHORT SOCKS!!! And fraternal? Oh yeah. Not even close to twins.
Hey Heather! I dunno if we will have anymore of the stripey sock yarn but keep checking the shop and I'll see what I can do to con Miss Morgan into doing some more. I do have 40g left over if you want it. You can always do different heels/toes. Lemme know and I can get it to you. Oh and hey!
UFC TOMORROW!! Georges. St Pierre VS Matt Serra in Montreal!! Bring on teh pizza!
How soon til VEGAS?

and just so you don't think Pickles was the only unhappy pup, here's the grouchiest of them all. The snow was over his head at one point and a path had to be made so he could wee. Poor Maximilian J Scrufflesworth the third esq.com (he prefers this).
Now this is some merino from ebay somewhere that is spun into self striping (Gods I rock) yarn. 2 ply, the colour changes were easy enough as I remembered to write them down. Never tried this before, but it turned out AWESOME. There is 332 grams (11.7 ounces) of this stuff!
Crown Mountain Superwash merino. Um I love this. It really wants to stay with me. And become thick house socks. Really.
I am so looking forward to our Vegas getaway. Its too soon to start a countdown, so until then, I'm marking time in other ways. Like 8 more days until the St Pierre/Serra fight! 1 day until I have my pals over! 2 hours until I eat lunch! Ok.. thats how it goes. Sad innit?

Not a lot of fibre Friday to show you as I still have it on the wheel hidden from the painting bomb, but love list? Oh yeah..
My 40 dishtowels that are all the same.
The smell of the first bit of espresso to come out of my machine.
Using up a lip gloss, go buy a new one!
Finding my colour conditioner on sale and buying three tubes of it.
Little Caesar's Cheese pizza for 5 dollars.
Rona. Proudly Canadian. Like me!
The endless possibilities of freshly painted walls.
Terriers in the morning. Staring at me with their dog eyes. Whinging to go out. For the 4th time in an hour.
Watching James Irvin knock out Houston Alexander in less than 15 seconds of the first round. SUPERMAN PUNCH!
Hell's Kitchen and Chef Ramsey. Or just Chef Ramsey. In everything.
The fact that with this convalescence Chris watched the food network, flip this house and the slice channel. I can deal with that!
Coffee, always sweet sweet coffee.
Cupcakes. Cause I know I am gonna have a real one this weekend. This craving is strong. Like the force, but with better icing.
What about some etsy love? OK!
Excellent Fridge Protection
SCARY! I love it
Have a wonderful weekend possums!
*Relative to Chris. Who has GIANT FEET! And you know what giant feet means.. GIANT SOCKS.

Which became this:
And finally this:
And look who is tired. Ha.
Its a dogs life innit? I would like to state for the record, its not the paint, its the prep. Spackle, sand, wash and tape? BLERGH. But I stuck it out and really? The whole mess took me about 5 hours or so. ALONE WITH NO HELP INCLUDING EVERYTHING.
After we watched UFC Fight night (OMG AMAZING) and a whack of TV in our lovely new room. YAY!
*I know, I told Chris not to get me in photos with my pink long johns and ramones t-shirt. Gee thanks hon.
